    I haven't heard of Blizzard ever cracking down on that... have there been any cases when a sold character has been deactivated? I mean, every WoW player I know has sold his high level characters once they got tired of them (or WoW altogether)... which seems a very reasonable recompense for the time and effort involved.

    Lots and lots of accounts have been perma banned for trading. Generally they only act on blatant cases and people handling it in stupid and obvious ways.

    I find Blizzard to be quite good with security on accounts. Mine got hacked a few months ago (back when I was still playing it) and raised a ticket and within 2 or 3 days I had all my gear and gold back, pretty much exactly as it was before.

    Yeah, hacking accounts happens quite often to be honest. I've met a lot of people and some were waiting for up to few weeks to get their gear back.

    As for selling accounts, yeah, it's more of a dont-see-dont-care policy on it. Every now and then they make an example of it, like the guy that sold his acc for 7000€ for being the first rogue with both Illidan blades. They kinda had to take that one down. More annoying are the scammers that prey on people who're trying to sell accounts. They're very convincing (probably because it's well worth it) and i bet they get a lot of people practicaly giving them their account, thinking they're official blizz.

    Since the latest patch the game has been great, they are really setting it up for the expansion. I can't see anyone challenging Blizzard on the MMO market, they are just too damn good. Last week they unleashed a zombieplague on their players, slowly building it up until the zombies had taken over all hte major cities and quest hubs to the outcry to millions of whiners but the total delight to everyone else. You got infected you turned into a zombie who could infect others. It was a blast, seeing hordes of zombies lumber around in the major cities chasing down and killing players, eating the brains of hte guards. Oh yeah, there isn't much RP in WoW but when it appears it is damn good.
